Battle of the Bulge tour
Custom made private tour on request.
The Battle of the Ardennes, also known as the Battle of the Bulge, was the last major offensive of the German Wehrmacht on the western front in World War II. The battle took place from December 16, 1944 to January 25 1945 and was won by the Allies. The Battle of the Bulge is called this way because of the shape of the front line (a bulge or sack).
During our trip on the Ardennes offensive, we will travel to the forests of Foy, where the shooter pits can still be seen from Easy Company, 101st Airborne Division. The group of soldiers who sat here has been immortalized in the series of Steven Spielberg, Band of Brothers. We will also visit the historic town of Bastogne where a lot has happened during the Second World War. The Bastogne War Museum and the Bastogne Barracks are also in the program. Here General McAuliffe spoke the well-known word "NUTS!" In response to the ultimatum that the German troops had set when they had surrounded Bastogne. We will also visit the Mardasson monument, the December 44 museum in la Gleize and the Baugnez 44 museum during our battlefield tour on the Ardennes offensive. The American cemeteries of Margraten and Henri-Chapelle will certainly not be missed, in which we will commemorate the many victims of this major offensive. Curious about this impressive journey?
